Man charged with cocaine delivery a potential juror in murder case

A Hudson man facing felony cocaine charges was bound over for trial Thursday, March 28.

Andrew D. Erickson, 25, was scheduled to enter a plea April 8 in a 3:15 p.m. arraignment hearing.

However, Erickson's next court date could be delayed by another significant proceeding.

Defense attorney John O'Boyle informed Judge Edward Vlack that Erickson was on the panel of some 150 potential jurors in the Aaron Schaffhausen murder case and if selected, it could delay his appearance.

Erickson posted bail March 22 on two counts of felony delivery of cocaine and misdemeanor charges of possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia.

The criminal complaint alleged on March 6 and March 12 Erickson delivered cocaine to a confidential informant at two different locations in Hudson.

On March 21 peace officers conducted a search warrant at Erickson residence in Hudson, the complaint said.

Clarissa M. Harder, 24, 1325 Front St., Hudson, pleaded innocent to possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia March 22 in connection with the same incident.
